Z axis limitation

This seems like a great industrial product, until you see on the data sheet that the Z axis is limited to 600 Hz. You will need to mount two devices to truely get 3 axis, 2700 Hz performance.

As for the IoT, this is how it all starts.  Lots of digital data which is easily transmitted and saved.  Then you have to analyze it.
